Saw this Santro yesterday on the ORR in Bangalore, Iblur stretch. The number, to me at least, is highly suspicious.

I managed to get along side this car due to differential speeds of lanes (it was rush hour stop-go traffic), and found that the number plate seemed to be painted over, with potentially another number below it.

I'd seen something on similar lines (Take a look at this number plate!) a while ago. KA05 is still in KA-05-B range (AFAIK), it has to go over to C, then D, then AA all the way till AZ, followed by BA to BZ and finally to CA and to CF, each series requiring registration of 9999 commercial vehicles. It can take a very long time, unless this person somehow managed to "buy" a lucky number way out of the sequence.

That for sure does not look like a genuine series in Bangalore RTO, at least at present.

Even if the car was re-registered, it would get a series from the present running one. I don't think number auctioning will go to a series too far ahead.

This does not seem anywhere close to any of the series. Private vehicles series is still in MW for Indiranagar and should be in MX for RTO's that are registering more.

I am trying to figure out which other state has CF as their series. Maybe this chap just changed the state on the number plate.

AFAIK, the RTO does not allocate fancy numbers or "special" numbers so far in advance.

Given that the plate looked like it had been painted over, my thoughts ran along similar lines. I checked out MP and CG, but drew a blank.

No words for this. The car was old enough to have a registration number associated with it. Out of curiosity I went in front to check and it did have a number plate.
Hanging a 'registered' board is very misleading.

I saw this Santro with the pre-2003 plate colour scheme. I wonder how he managed to keep it for 13 years without police trouble.

I was in Hyderabad recently for some official meeting and was put up at Leonia Holistic Destination. Was surprised to see their entire fleet of Innovas sporting a "Govt Vehicle" sticker, both front and rear, as in the pic below. I even saw a brand new Innova without registration, but sporting the govt vehicle sticker.
Can someone throw some light on how and why a 5 star property is upto this and how do they manage to continue this practice?

Looks to be on Temporary registration IMO.

Look at the below posts:

1 (Indian States Registration Number Identification)

2 (Indian States Registration Number Identification)

EDIT:

The posts seem to be giving different reasons and I'll go with SirAlec's post as his reasoning seems a bit near to what you have posted. Car is from Gujrat but being driven in Maharastra so may the owner wanted it out before the number arrived hence this GJW plate!

I may be wrong too!

That is a Taxi registration on White plates used by politicians in the state, hence the red sticker. I have seen ministers and their security use these vehicles in the undivided Andhra Pradesh, before the bifurcation took place. I am surprised to see that these vehicles are still in use.

But these Innovas were not being used by any ministers or MLAs, rather these were the resort fleet vehicles used to ferry guests. And I saw both yellow and white plates with the govt vehicle stickers.

GJW is very much a Gujarat State temporary registration.

I regularly see GJW registered cars in Bombay.

Going by the badge/monogramme positioning at the rear, the car in question is the new facelifted XUV 5OO.

Yes Sir, If you read the last para in my post, I did mention that the car is from Gujarat!

So it means that this form of registration issued is for Temporary purpose so that one can take it out of state IF required.
